Hello There, I hope I posted this in the right thread. I've been struggling with solving this particular Differential Equation and just couldn't find any way to solve it completely.. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am only required to find the general solution of the differential equation y'' + y' = tan(t) 2. Relevant equations Wronskian of two functions. Characteristic Polynomial of a (homogeneous) Differential Equation. 3. The attempt at a solution First I found the solution to the associated DE y''+y'=0 which gave me y1=1 and y2=e-t Thus the general solution is y= u1*y1 + u2*y2 where u1 and u2 are two functions of t to be determined. Using the method of variation of parameters I ended up with u1 = -ln|cos(t)| + c1 (Note that the Wronskian of y1 & y2 is -e-t ) However I ended up with u2 = -∫et*tant dt which is obviously unsolvable.. You can find attached my work and attempts. Is there anything wrong? or is there another way around? like just writing the integral as an infinite series? Thank you for your help!
